review by Carl J. Griffin | July 4, 2014
Since 2011 swathes of protest, rebellion, and rioting have covered the globe. Challenging us to consider arson attacks against empty buildings, Black Bloc streetfighting tactics and industrial sabotage, amongst an array of other militant action, Stephen D'Arcy aims to show a crucial contrast between democratic and undemocratic action, rather than violence and non-violence.

The last decade in Canada has seen the strengthening of the instruments of repression of the Canadian State such that we can now begin to describe and analyze the neoliberal containment state as a specific set of policies and institutions. These policies and institutions are aimed at containing the growing social 'disorder' and emerging resistance that have resulted from 30 years of the neoliberal economic order.

Books: Unions Matter
review by Andrew Jackson | July 3, 2014
This excellent book on why unions and a strong labour movement are essential building blocks of a sound economy and of a just and democratic society deserves to be widely circulated. It is accessible to individual labour activists who wish to deepen their understanding of the role of unions -- both inside and outside the workplace -- and should be widely adopted for use in post-secondary labour studies courses and union educational programs.

| July 2, 2014
The election of Socialist Alternative member Kshama Sawant to the Seattle City Council represented a qualitative step forward in the building of an independent left alternative to the two-party political establishment. Not only was the campaign itself a rallying point for the left, but as a City Council member, Sawant has helped advance the struggle for workers' rights.

|Solidarity With Gaza: End the assault on Gaza! Break the siege!|
Israeli forces have now killed more than 1,000 Palestinians (including over 170 children), wounded over 6,000 and displaced over 200,000 people in Gaza. Protests are being organized in cities around the world to respond to Israeli war crimes and to call for an immediate military embargo on Israel.
As they did during Israel's attack on Gaza in 2008-09 that killed over 1400 Palestinians, the Canadian government is once again giving its full, uncritical support to Israel. Canada has supported Israel's illegal siege on Gaza since it began over 7 years ago - never calling on Israel to end the blockage to allow food, medicine, building supplies and other necessities into Gaza. Canada continues to engage in free trade, particularly arms deals, with Israel. Canada is deeply complicit in the crimes being committed in Palestine.
The Coalition Against Israeli Apartheid is calling on all people of conscience to take action against Israel's war crimes and Canadian support for these massacres.
